What should a healthy perennial look like?

Purchasing Perennials

When purchasing perennials, make sure the plants aren't root bound. Beware of any plants that look too big for the pot they're in. To be sure a plant isn't root bound, slide the plant out of the pot and examine the roots. If they are all twisted around one another in one mass, the plant is root bound and you shouldn't buy it, as it may not take after transplanting.
